Foods More Often Available During Holiday Season?

I celebrate zero holidays. Zilch, none, nada. However, there are many foods that appear on store shelves specifically for the holidays and are not only available, but are cheaper.

For instance, Thanksgiving and turkey. At my local grocery store, we obtained quality turkey at $0.57 / pound. We bought, not one, but three.

Another common food item sold at this time is Egg Nog. I don't buy so much of that, as it is expensive, but since it is not on the shelves at other times, I do buy a quart, or perhaps even a half gallon.

This year we found something I haven't seen in quite some time that is one of my very favorites -- mincemeat. I love mincemeat pie. The name includes the word meat, but it refers to the fact that the pie filler contains beef suet. Actual meat is not present. The pie includes raisins, apples, currants, all good and fragrant stuff!

Do you buy special foods during the holiday season, whether you observe the actual holidays or not?

Our main purchases of this type would be fruit but it's probably a coincidence that certain fruits are available then. I LOVE turkey but my husband prefers chicken, so I sometimes buy a turkey leg to keep in the freezer but our Christmas turkey is fresh.
